Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.

Welcome to LIFE of Florida!

Our secular and inclusive Florida-wide Informal Education support group acts as a resource center and clearinghouse for homeschoolers, informal learners and alternative educators interested in enriching their learning environments and maximizing their learning opportunities, as well as an advocacy center for Curiosity Driven Learning.

There is no cost to be part of LIFE of Florida -- just join in at our email discussion and announcement list, Florida LIFE, where you can download your membership card -- good for educational discounts throughout FL -- and stay informed and updated on events, issues and resources, and connect with other informal learners throughout the state.

If you're just getting started in homeschooling, be sure to check out our LIFE of Florida Quick Links, our list of Useful Docs, and our enormous collection of resources in the side columns, and visit our Inclusive Homeschool Support Groups page to find a group near you.

If you'd like your regional inclusive support group to be networked with LIFE of Florida, drop us a line with a group description, contact and other relevant information and we'll add you, free of charge, to our directory. All your group members will be automatically considered members of LIFE of Florida, and are entitled to membership cards and all the benefits we offer. Virtual school families are also welcome to enjoy our resources, support and camaraderie.

We're all inclusive and free of charge, and we're here for you!

LIFE Fest 2008 - Saturday, September 20, Eckerd

We've got the date and location set for LIFE Fest 2008, our annual home and alternative learners conference. This year's even will be held on Saturday, September 20, from 10am-4pm, at the Eckerd College Conference Center and Lodge. It's a great location that lends itself well to a family friendly event, with Ft. Desoto camping and beaches just down the road,and St. Pete museums and other attractions nearby.

Lodging is available right on the premises for a very reasonable $65/night. We'll have the whole package pulled together by next week, but wanted to give you a heads up so you can put LIFE Fest 2008 on your calendar. We're planning on keeping admission costs to just $10 per family, and, in the spirit of a Green LIFE Fest, plan to give carpool discounts.

Vendor and LIFE Fest Bazaar booths must be reserved by August. (Local homeschool support group booths are free.) Visit Learning is for Everyone for details. We're also holding a Planners Drawing in which those who send us LIFE Fest ideas by May 31 are automatically entered.
